11:09am
is a bind? >> a loan between issuer and a lender. the lenders often the investor. it has reached a peak components besides interest rate and maturity. an investor wants to analyze what is the issuer's ability to pay the bill. these bonds generally finance capital improvements such as property, equipment, inventory. anything along the lines to help the issuer was some sort of objective. >> what is the difference between an individual bond and bond fund. >> individual bond has an interest rate and maturity that is set for life of the bonds. a lot bond fund is a compilation of underlying securities that set a certain investment executive. bond funds are subject to a net asset value or the value of the fund at the end of the day. this is based on underlying assets but could be manipulated by other things such as large investor outflows very bonds
11:10am
are basically ious issued to a government or corporation. the basic concepts. >> was there is between a yield and a coupon? >> the coupon is a set rate of return said the investor will get based on the total principal invested. a yield reflective of the price you pay of the bond. a bond prices a percentage of the total par value of the amount of standing of the bond. when you take the price of that, a percentage you divide that by the coup by that is how you get the yield varies based on the price you pay you have the current market rates. >> said investors worry about credit ratings? how does that affect bond holders? >> credit ratings are great start for to analyze a bond in assets see it as you to pay the bill. we've heard a few things were they have erred a little bit. and our practice the is a credit rating agency as a nice bass
11:11am
line and starting point for a bind. we die than a lot deeper to understand the ability to pay the bills in the future. bond ratings are more flexible in the past. >> i look at the 10 year treasury bond that the government is you bind and it has recently spike. how has that affected your industry? >> we a seen a big market sellout across the board. there's an interesting relationship between price and yield. as deal goes up prices go down. this historic flavor fax inflationary expectations. in place as running between 1.4 quantitative easing program buys 85 billion a month worth of mortgage and treasury securities. at by doing that, they drive
11:12am
prices up and based on the relationship between price yields, it makes yields fall. this keeps interest rates low and impact its interest rate sensitive environments or markets such as housing. as we're seeing rates increase, that is largely due to the risk that the fed may reduce this by a buying program. >> we have seen the bond funds hit pretty aggressively in the past few months. do expect these to continue to lose some of their value? >> that is the $100 million question right there. i think personally that the bond sell-off has gone a little too far. on may 21st ben bernanke had some remarks and then he had a question and answer session where said market that is the implied they may begin to bring by year end. it could impact the purchases by the end of next year. we saw the market reacts to
11:13am
that very quickly and saw bit of a tailspin. i see bond prices fall too far too fast and we're seeing some of the best values we have seen in two to three years particularly in the tax reusable bond market. >> we will keep you around for another segment and get a little bit more information from him. you can find out more at alamo capital, vice president of investment information at aloe capital .com. they have been around for a long time and great service in with guns. we'll be right back and you can always e-mail me at rob black .com. we will be right back.

11:17am
are getting hit with much higher costs. >> speaking of a higher cost, of who should own the bonds? what i was growing up it was something old people all that because they like the security of them. >> bonds are critical for investors to love and come. the like having that regular consistent cash flow based on underlying security? bonds salt that need. classically portfolio is composed of 60% equity, 40% fixed income. that varies based of the a time, risk and objectives. by having a fixed income component and equity component, that is a nice solution to minimize voluntary. >> bonds have been thought of as safety, you get your in come. it does not always work out like that. standard
11:18am
audio and its right have had some minor problems. >> that's when the need to get down to the credit analysis of the issuers. issuer's ability to pay the bills. you get a lot of the obligations. lars obligation it is expenses. health care, up untipension obligations. most issuers are doing an excellent job at paring back expenses and finding revenue. over the last year we have seen at revenues rebound from lows of 2009 to 2010 your missile issuers or doing far better. if you factor in the tax rates for a seen the state income-tax rates increase and the federal tax rates increase and the affordable aicare act another 3% for the top
11:19am
earners. that makes tax minutes of the bonds of the greater. >> municipal is also known as a muni bond. they give you a coupon, they give you a yield on your money and you pay back over time as the concept. i always say there's a big difference between a paula autobahn and a stock and bond. that is something that our listeners and viewers should pay attention to. palo alto will probably find every issue that comes through. stockton, not a lot of jobs that come through. kenny played a difference of cities? >> economic feasibility continues to exist. not every good day is a great bond. not every bad name is a bad bond. but give the security behind the line. water bonds up finance water improvements for the water, wastewater sewer system. those are secured by the net
11:20am
revenues of underlying enterprise. city bonds by the general fund may not be paying right now over the water bonds perrin secured bonds are making regular payments because of this restricted line of revenues securing those very paulo alto has a great cast well, a really strong property tax base. those bonds are generally perceived as safer. it is critical to understand the underlying cash flows that securities bonds a major there is nothing that can really and here that there. we have general obligation bonds that are secured by property taxes. to contrast a certificate of participation and lease revenue bonds that are secured by the general fund on a parity basis with all other creditors of a city.
11:21am
the appropriation of those bonds is generally perceived as unconditional. stockton in san bernadine else certainly brought that into question. >> i like bonds, there is source of income other than my job. billy small is with alamo capital you confine him on line at alamo capital .com. member get to call the show or drop me an e-mail at rob black .com.

11:23am
97 >> welcome back to the show, let's go to a phone call. it
11:24am
steve. what is your question? >> first of all i really enjoy your program. i live have a lot of bodies of water stored the light that i had some gain on. they are 4 1/2 to 5%, i am in my sixties and have a fixed income. are those good to keep holding? >> he has lost a little bit of principal equity recently. >> essential service bonds secured by the net revenues of the underlying enterprise and generally have a break cabinet that allows issuers to raise rates to pay the debt service. at 4 1/2 to 5 percent, at my opinion that return is very fair ball particularly for investors in the 6270 year old age group. by having that secured line of revenue,
11:25am
you're not necessarily on the same basis as health- care and pension that are little bit difficult to analyze. you're a secured by that revenue that is going straight to your bond holders. they have the ability to raise rates at. >> thank you very much that is billy small that you can reach at alamo capital .com. >> what is the biggest stock mistake you made? >> i bought a medical device company not knowing that the medical revenue is not there and companies that do not have a lot of product. the big guns have prodded to fall back on, the small ones do not. the revenue that i did see showed me was something that i should not have bought. laid out once to know what do i think of annuities? 99
11:26am
percent of annuities are inappropriate for investors. they're sold by insurance companies that have an insurance component as well as investing component. if interest rates were a lot higher you could make a case for a fixed in, or a fixed rate or a return in your retirement portfolio. i would use a low commission, los c type of firm. i would not think to use an insurance broker it will just get you into trouble. annuities have a lot of commissions. if you get a pension of $500,000 you could make a broker $45,000 in commissions just like that would buying products that you don't really need. do not ensure which you can'annuities are not a good product for most investors. reggie ask our gold coins a good idea? again, something with mass of profit margins and they run a lot of advertising. they plot
11:27am
their worst case of fears of the economy is going to hack and a hand basket. gold coins and have typically 30% market when you buy them and sell them. they're not very liquid. if the economic downturn hits you will want to have a shotgun instead of gold. the lower end of gold is cute but it does not have against inflation. that is when you're wealthy, not when you're poor. not to create wealth, it is a wealth protector. we are out of time and i would like to think bill's the mall from alamo capital. if you have any further questions e-mail me at rob black dot com.
